Dental bone grafting is a pre-implant surgical procedure that involves adding bone to the jaw to prepare for dental implants. This helps restore a strong and functional jaw while maintaining a natural appearance.
The success of an implant depends on the quantity and quality of bone in contact. In cases of bone defects, bone augmentation and regeneration therapies are necessary to ensure the proper placement of an implant.
Depending on the bone defect and anatomical situation, various regenerative therapies will be proposed, and the one with the highest success rate in studies will be implemented.

A bone graft is necessary when the jawbone is too thin or fragile to support dental implants. It creates a strong foundation for future implants and helps avoid long-term complications.
The best way to determine if you need a bone graft is to consult with a specialized dentist. At The Smile Clinic, we offer a comprehensive assessment to evaluate your situation and determine if a bone graft is necessary.
A dental bone graft is performed in several steps. First, the bone graft specialist, Dr. Joseph NAMMOUR, conducts a consultation to determine the most suitable technique for your case. Then, he performs the pre-implant surgery by either harvesting bone from another part of your body or using a substitute material. Finally, after a healing period, dental implants are placed.
The sinus lift, also known as sinus floor elevation, can be beneficial before dental implant placement to ensure the jaw and teeth’s strength and functionality. When there is a lack of bone height in the posterior maxillary areas, bone augmentation can be performed in the sinus area to allow for implant placement.
Horizontal bone augmentation widens the bone ridge. These augmentations address the lack of bone width in the horizontal direction, resulting from bone loss after tooth extraction.
Successful implant treatment requires a sufficient alveolar ridge height. Vertical augmentations address the lack of bone height in the vertical direction due to significant bone remodeling.
Preserving the alveolar ridge bone plays a crucial role in ensuring the gum heals properly if you plan to replace a lost tooth with an implant. These regeneration therapies are used after the extraction of certain teeth to maintain sufficient bone volume for implant placement.
In cases where there is insufficient bone, it is necessary to attempt bone volume reconstruction to allow for implant placement. This surgical technique allows for guided bone regeneration using biomaterials and membranes.
These surgeries are performed when correcting a gummy smile or when teeth are too damaged to receive crowns.
Bone grafting may cause pain and swelling after the procedure, but these discomforts are typically temporary. At Smile Clinic, we do everything possible to minimize these inconveniences, including local anesthesia, pain medications, and post-operative care instructions.

A dental bone graft is a surgical procedure aimed at increasing the amount of bone in the jaw where one or more teeth are missing. This procedure is often necessary before dental implant placement to ensure stability and durability.
Dental bone graft surgery is performed under anesthesia, so you will not feel pain during the procedure. After the operation, you may experience mild discomfort, which can be managed with pain medications prescribed by your dentist.
